(Liberty Bell) – As the nation comes to grips with the severity of the coronavirus and its potential lasting impact, some are taking the opportunity to promote their agenda however they can.
“Because coronavirus” is going to be the new buzzwords for the left to promote whatever radical policy they can.
We’re already seeing it in the way some blue state governors have taken the opportunity to rob their citizens’ rights out from under their nose.
Illegal aliens who have been allowed to remain in the United States thanks to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, aka DACA, declared before the Supreme Court on Friday that the program should be preserved…say it with me now…because coronavirus.
Attorneys claimed in a letter to the court that there are 27,000 DACA recipients currently working in the healthcare industry in the midst of the crisis, according to The Gateway Pundit.
“The pandemic sheds new light on the reliance interests of healthcare providers and the public health consequences of ignoring those interests,” the lawyers wrote.
They’re appealing a ruling by District Court Judge Andrew Hanen from August 31, 2018 which deemed the program unconstitutional as it was never approved by Congress and rather enacted unilaterally by former President Barack Obama.
The program, from 2012, gave temporary amnesty to over 825,000 illegal aliens who had been brought to the country as minors by their illegal alien parents.
According to the attorneys, to end the program “during this national emergency would be catastrophic.”
A decision by the high court was originally expected this summer, but could be delayed by the pandemic.
Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, socialist upstart Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) whined that the $3 trillion spending bill didn’t have enough payouts for illegal aliens.
As WND reported:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is blasting Republicans for refusing to send rebate checks to taxpayers without a Social Security number, including illegal aliens.
She was referring to the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill that is now on its way to President Trump for his signature, DailyMail.com reported.
“To clarify, $1200 checks are ONLY going to some w/social sec numbers, NOT immigrants w/ tax IDs (ITINs),” Ocasio-Cortez wrote Thursday on Twitter.
“Thanks to GOP, these checks will be cut off the backs of *taxpaying immigrants,* who get nothing. Many are essential workers who pay more taxes than Amazon,” she said.
